An action of one identity leaves the other identity unaffected.

In general, attempts are continuing to be made to integrate these different identity bases. Most recently, Deaux and Martin (2001) offered a model that links social and role identities. They proposed that each large-scale group identity is linked to an interpersonal network of others.

Support comes in assuming reciprocal roles for the identity one claims, thereby producing role and counter-role identities.
